Calle Dão is designed to pay homage to Havana's once-thriving El Barrio Chino (Chinatown). Known as the largest such community in Latin America, El Barrio Chino occupied 44 square blocks of real estate in the late 1870s. As the Cuban and Chinese cultures mixed, a unique fusion of cuisine emerged. Today, El Barrio Chino occupies a small section of the narrow Calle Cuchillo - Knife Street - from which Calle Dão takes its name. The cuisine, cocktails, and décor of Calle Dão strive to transport our guests back to El Barrio Chino when it was at the height of its existence. Calle Dão has created mouthwatering dishes seamlessly blending Cuban staples with Asian flavors. The cocktails, created by Mixologist Joy Daniel, also meld the old world with the new using historical names for libations with modern ingredients. 1857 is a bold sip of orange-infused vodka, amaretto, fresh lime juice, ground ginger, and sesame oil garnished with star anise. It commemorates the year the first ship carrying Chinese laborers arrived in Cuba. Calle Dáo's décor, the creation of its owner Marco Britti (Favela Cubana), is reminiscent of a sultry, old-world Havana restaurant with white-washed walls, distressed wood, and whirring ceiling fans. Chinese artwork, spices, and bright colors provide the accents. Step into a bygone era and enjoy a modern dining experience at Calle Dão.

    Had a great dinner. Our waiter was funny and efficient. The food was very flavorful and I really enjoyed the paella with black rice. My husband had the pork tenderloin which was delicious but a large portion was fat. It was a fun relaxing night with family. We will def try it again.

    Our server, Justin, was great — just the right amount of friendly, had good recommendations for food, was there when we needed him but didn’t rush us. We ordered an array of food to share and every single thing was delicious. They didn’t have any no alcoholic drinks on the menu but the bar whipped up a delish virgin mojito for one of our party, while the caphirina another person ordered was nice & strong. The only negative is that it’s so lively that it can get VERY loud. Would definitely go back again.

    I went on a Sunday morning and it was great. The ambiance is beautiful and cozy which is what i was looking for. Only thing that I didn't love was the noise level as the people arrived. If I was there for a social gathering it would have been perfect. I went for a business lunch and we fond ourselves speaking very loudly in order to continue our conversation. Place isn't suitable for business but defiantly for a fun time!

    Terrible food. Service was fine and atmosphere is ok but we should have known better because the place was empty on a Sat night. Margarita tasted like nothing like a margarita - more like sprite and tequila. Date’s paella was inedible — tasted fishy/smelled like beach garbage. Do not recommend!

    I actually found this place while looking around maps while walking and was intrigued by name and style, etc. The way that the history of the Chinatown within Cuba is what inspired this cuisine makes it an exciting dine-in and makes you willing to try new things. It takes a large palette but will not let you down. Great atmosphere as well!

    The young person at the front was a little snippy because we didn’t make a reservation. So I quickly made a reservation online at we were quickly seated. The waitress was fantabulous!! She was so helpful and her food recommendations were spot on. The food was delicious. The tostones, however, was a little under seasoned. But everything else was really really good.

    Our waiter - didn’t get his name, unfortunately, is super thoughtful. I was there with my colleague and was shown a table in the back. I was wondering why he did that when there was 2 empty table in the front part of the restaurant. I insisted to be seated in the front - away from the bathroom. After sitting down for awhile, I realized the reason why our water ushered us to the table in the middle/ back part of the restaurant. There was 3 girls sitting in front (by the bar) who’s been drinking since happy hour. One of the girl was super drunk and have a very annoying loud high pitch voice. When I asked the waiter, he told me they have been there since happy hour. I put two and two together, and asked our waiter, is that why you wanted to seat us in the back? Away from this annoying trio? (Actually only one was loud with annoying high pitch voice). His smile answered my question. What a thoughtful person our waiter was. I should have gotten his name and made the management aware of his customer service skills.

    Excellent vibe, cocktails and food. This gem is one block from the bustle of Bryant Park. Dined here on a Saturday night before an 8:00 Broadway show and the casual crowd turned into a chatty, energetic crowd by 7:30. Appetizers, entrees and desserts all were delicious. Coffee and cappuccinos excellent. Will definitely return.

    Came here for HH with a few friends after work. Made a reservation for 5:30 and got there early so got a drink at the bar, it was pretty empty in the place but let me tell you it gets pretty packed and a res is def needed after 6/6:30. Got a couple happy hour margaritas which were a great price but a bit too sweet for my liking. So I switched to a tequila soda which is also part of their HH (well drinks) and it was much better. We ordered a few apps and an entree and the food was delicious: wings, steamed dumplings, empanadas & yuca fries as well as the beef & broccoli bowl entree which was sufficient enough for 3 people to share. Everyone enjoyed the ambiance, food and their drinks (my two friends got the caipirinha & mojito and they loved them). We stayed for 2 hours and at no point were we rushed to leave. Would definitely come back.
